    If you are having trouble getting your breading to stick to the fish; place it in the freezer for 20 min and then right to the grill. It works just the same for fried fish or fried chicken. As others suggested, it needs salt and the seasoned bread crumbs should do the trick.

    Loved it!!! Added less lemon juice and no lemon peel. My boyfriend is in love with this dish and can't believe it's healthy

    The breading on these sandwiches really needs salt. Otherwise it is quite bland. I also couldn't get the breading to stick without dipping the fish in beaten egg first. I'd try them again, but with salt.

    This was very tasty, but needs salt.. It stayed together on the grill as well, which was a concern of mine w/grilling fish.
